Assembling the Right Forearm
Right Forearm Muscles
Gather the Forearm C and the four Forearm Muscle Springs:
Using a toothpick or similar tool, apply a small amount of super glue to one of the four grooves in Forearm C. Then, place one of the Forearm Muscle Springs into and up against the end of this groove and hold in place to let the glue set.
Safety first! Super glue can easily bond human skin, so be careful here and try not to touch the wet glue:
Repeat this process for the three remaining Forearm Muscle Springs:
Fit this assembly into the groove (circled below) of Forearm B, as shown:
Secure these forearm parts together with one (1) KB 2×4 mm screw:
Fit this assembly to Forearm A, aligning these grooves (circled below):
Secure these forearm parts together with one (1) PM 3×12 mm screw as shown:
Any time I have to use glue, things can get tricky, but this issue was not so bad. This part of the arm will be needed again in Issue 14, so keep it safe for now. As for materials, the Forearm Muscle Springs are metal, but the rest of the parts are plastic.
Running Total of screws used so far: 34
